Some days being fashionable just isn't in the cards. The energy required to pull together an outfit is so far beyond the scope of reality, it's almost laughable. Every person needs go-to items in the closet -- ones that you can throw on and walk out the door and feel at least somewhat put together. If you're the type of person who wears dresses, you know that they can often be the perfect style solution. And when they combine style, comfort, and pockets -- well, what more could you ask for?

  • Enter everyone's latest Amazon obsession: this loose and lovely maxi dress.

  • Both new moms and moms-to-be are raving about how great they feel in this dress. 


    Reviewer and soon-to-be mama Darci Robinson couldn't be more excited about her maxi dress purchase. 

    "I LOVE this dress! After seeing a blogger post about it on Instagram, I decided to give it a try! I’m 5’7, 135 lbs. with a growing baby bump & I LOVE how the small fits me! It’s a little shorter than other maxis that I own, but the slits on the sides make that not a big deal- I actually like that it shows off my shoes! The fabric is super comfy & stretchy so I plan to get a lot of wear out of this dress as the bump grows! I highly recommend ordering one!"

  • Though some may think the "shapelessness" of this dress might create an odd look for newly postpartum moms, it turns out to be a hit!


    "Awesome dress," exclaimed one new mom.  "After giving birth to my daughter I have felt very, very self conscious about my 'mom body.' However this dress is so comfortable and very flattering. I was scared because it's a loose fitting dress I would look like I was wearing a moo moo. I looked awesome and actually felt pretty again! Will be buying more in other colors!"

  • And, both moms and nonmothers alike say that this dress works comfortably for a variety of body types.


    One reviewer loved how this dress fit her "thicker" body.

    " I bought the 2X. I'm 5'10" without heels. I'm a 42F bra. I'm thick in the middle. I'm wearing shape-wear. This is so pretty and light and flowy. Perfect for a warm summer night."

  • It's important to note not everyone loved this dress. 

    There were several people who complained about the maxi-dresses length, saying it feel a little too short for their liking. Also, a few felt it was important to size up if you really wanted that "loose fit" look the model is rocking. 

    Out of 3,337 reviews, 77% of them were four stars and above -- not bad for an under $30 find!
